After couple of times trying, i notice that 'whois' command in suse
10.0 not working as usual. Before suse 10.0, whenever i type 'whois',
it will shows this:
back1:~ # whois
Usage: whois [OPTION]... OBJECT...
-l one level less specific lookup [RPSL only]
-L find all Less specific matches
-m find first level more specific matches
< ---- cut ---->
And I can check domain from it. 'whois linux.com'.
But in suse 10.0, it shows nothing.
gwcbn:~ # whois linux.com
Has anyone had problem like this ? I really need to use whois, cause
it's more easy and quicker then browsing thru web to check domain

I have noticed that the earlysyslog, mdnsd, and nscd services are failing
during boot. Trying to run them manually seg faults, as does netstat. The
only logged information I have found is in dmesg:
Unable to load interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2
I can't seem to find a satisfactory answer to this, most other occurrences of
this that I found seem to suggest that the vfs has hit the max open files
limit, for eg here:
The suggestion is to increase the value in /proc/sys/fs/file-max but doing
so, even significantly, has no effect. Does anyone else have any
troubleshooting advice? /lib/ld-linux.so.2 is linked to /lib/ld-2.4.so
I thought you might be interested in the Metalinks for openSUSE, which are
automatically generated by one of your mirrors (http://ftp.iasi.roedu.net/)
Metalinks are really useful for large files like ISOs and contain all mirror
and p2p locations along with checksums and other metadata. I've attached one
(edited, doesn't contain all mirrors), its an XML file and is pretty self
explanatory, but there are two good descriptions here:
'We've all seen those download pages where a couple of http, ftp and
bittorrent mirrors are listed. We often just pick one of these, but wouldn't
it be great if you could use them all at the same time?
Metalinker has the solution. It works like this, the .metalink file tells
your download manager where it can get the file, and connects to these
different sources at the same time.'
Right now, Metalinks are used by OpenOffice.org and a few smaller Linux
distributions. I think they could be useful to you too.
Metalinks are supported by a number of download managers on Unix, Mac, and
Win. There are 2 for unix, a command line version
(http://aria2.sourceforge.net/) and one with a GUI.
If you have any questions, please contact me.

These days Firefox is being updated pretty often because of security threats.
I've been using the tarballs on the Mozilla website, but I'd prefer to use
SuSE RPMs if they are available. I'm running 10.0, not 10.1, so I need a
source that doesn't work only for the latest release of SuSE.
Is there a source for downloading the Firefox RPMs that is no more than a day
behind the Mozilla tarballs?
Just set up Bind on Suse 10, to replace an MS DNS server, and everything
appears to be working well except for the MX record; an MX entry was made
for the domain in Bind. When I point a Linux workstation to the Bind server,
I can ping everything and find entries via nslookup and dig, however when I
try to use 'mail user(a)mydomain.com', I get the following error and the
e-mail doesn't make it to its destination;

What is going wrong and how can I fix this?
Many thanks in advance,
For a couple of months ago, I bought a wireless network card for a
D-Link * *AirPlus G DWL-G510 (PCI)
IIRC, there are several versions of this card, with different chipsets
I got the one with a RaLink chipset, and were happy to find out, that
ralink provided drivers for this chipset.
Afer downloading the driver for RT61 wireless cards from RaLink, i
followed this very nice howto
It was success at first hit, and I am currently running it together with
a Linksys AP, set up with WPA-PSK.
**After setting up my wireless interface, it connects just fine, and
iwconfig shows something like (unimportant output removed):*
*ra0 RT61 Wireless ESSID:"SolidAP"
Mode:Managed Frequency:11 MHz Access Point: 00:16:B6:97:41:84
Link Quality=61/100 Signal level:-80 dBm Noise level:-111 dBm
0 errors, 0 invalid etc.
Now, to the problem:
After a random amount of time (sometimes minutes, sometimes days), it
looses the association with the ESSID, and never reconnects.
**ra0 RT61 Wireless ESSID:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:11 MHz Access Point: 00:16:B6:97:41:84
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level:-80 dBm Noise level:-111 dBm
**Why does it loose the association ?
And even weirder, a simple /etc/init.d/network restart does NOT help, I
have to do the following in order:
rmmod the driver module
insmod it again
before it gets the ESSID back.
Any clue ?
I thought there was a Suse "off-topic" mailing list for things not directly
related to Suse/Opensuse - I can't find it on the opensuse website...
Doesn't it exist anymore or did I just mean there was one?
(I am looking for a place to ask if registering a domain name should be done
somewhere else than network solutions, because WHOIS always leads to a
webpage saying network solutions is the worst registrar)

You're not going to believe this:

some time to find the courage to release it."
